Today's an easy one.
Autumn.
Autumn makes me happy.

It's not quite fully autumn yet, but it's getting close. As I drove to work this morning, there were more trees tinged with color, the valleys were filled with fog and the mountains had a shawl of low-hanging clouds that you just never see except in autumn.
I've always loved fall best. I was one of those kids who really loved school, so fall signalled the return to learning, new pencils and notebooks, and chilly early morning walks to school.

It's an odd thing, but I've always considered fall to be the start of the year. Even though everything is dying, that's when I seem to come alive, and that's when things feel renewed for me. I often make changes in my life in the fall, akin to new year's resolutions.

I sleep better once the days get shorter and the nights colder. I adore wrapping up in a cozy hoodie or sweater. I love the crunch of fallen leaves under my feet. The color palette of autumn pleases me to no end. The squirrels and chipmunks scurry around busily collecting stores for the winter. And the smell - there's nothing quite like the crisp, rustic scent of the air and leaves in the woods in autumn. *heart eyes*

So, yeah. Tomorrow is the autumnal equinox, and you can bet I'll be finding some time to be outside.

(Yes, this is in my town. No it's not my photo. But you're still jealous, aren't you?) ;-p

lol. I'll consider it... but idk. I quite like it as is. Maybe I'll draw one for YOU to use XP

P.S. That picture makes me think of the outside of Jensen's house in The Dizzy Heights of This Dreamed of World. It's probably because of the fence. And I think I would *love* to visit Vermont in the fall. You guys have the covered bridges, right? LOVE. I mean, autumn on the 'North Shore' of Lake Superior is stunning too, but a Northeastern fall would be something to see ♥

lol yes - there are 3 covered bridges right in my town, another 3 or 4 within 20 miles or so.
(and ftr, they are scary to drive over - they're old and rickety and usually one-way so you have to be careful not to go head-to-head with an oncoming car!)

I don't think I could live somewhere that didn't have autumn!
I'm very lucky that I live in an area of the US that's known for its beautiful fall - of course that means we get a huge influx of tourists this time of year, but I'll take the trade-off!

I adore Autumn as well. It's my favorite time of year. And I love the way you described it too.

Lovely pic. Yes, I am jealous :)
